Car also stolen during industrial estate break-in.

BURGLARS have targeted a second business on a Barnstaple industrial estate in the space of a month.

Thieves made off with a car and around �3,500 worth of tools following a raid at Ocean Mobility, in Gratton Way in Roundswell, which happened overnight between Wednesday, December 28 and Thursday 29.

A number of tools were taken as well as the keys to a silver Vauxhall Vectra, which was then stolen from outside the property. The car, registration FN04 SBZ, is still reported stolen.

Most of the tools taken bear the mark of a HM Forces serial number and logo.

Police said the break-in followed a similar incident at a business on the same industrial estate overnight between Tuesday, November 22 and Wednesday 23.

Burglars entered the Brammer Ltd through the skylight but took nothing after searching the premises, which is opposite Ocean Mobility.
